The term Carabiner is not only used to refer to the apparatus fastened to climbing ropes when scaling mountains. A small Carabiner clip is found on badge reels too. They are a popular choice in busy, active environments where a badge reel may easily be pulled or bumped by accident. A carabiner clip is lightweight and reliable but it also offers secure attachment to belt loops, key chains and more. This type of reel is popular with nurses, security guards, medics and others with active roles. The product comes with a clear, vinyl strap or a card clip.
